Shymkent Vacation Packages

Shymkent, a rather distant destination with no major cities nearby, can be found 620 miles (998 kilometers) south of Astana, the capital city of Kazakhstan.

If you are planning on visiting with kids, take them to the Waterpark Dolphin.

If you hope to attend a live sports event at Shymkent's Kazhymukan Stadium, travel 1 mile (2 kilometers) south of Shymkent. Buy some snacks, introduce yourself to a few local people and cheer until you simply can't anymore.

No adventure in the area could be considered complete without stopping at Shymkent Circus.

Venture 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southeast and you'll reach Birgulyuk, a popular side trip location. Alternatively, you could decide to travel 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the east to visit Zhabagly.

Explore the adventurer within while you're in Kazakhstan, where you can go hiking and horse riding.

Regional flavors can be the highlight of many vacations. Ask the local people which dishes are the most popular and explore the culinary customs.

Sour milk and rice are two ingredients that you'll commonly find in this region's local dishes.

Experience an authentic taste with local dishes like pelmani (meat dumplings) and basturma (mutton).

If your taste buds are asking for a dessert, or even a secret afternoon bite, order шек-шек (fried unleavened dough balls), a popular sweet treat.

You won't have to think about going overboard if you drink shubat (camel milk), one of the area's trademark non-alcoholic drinks.

If you're prone to feeling a swelling of national pride, mark the 16th of December in your planner so you won't miss Independence Day, a nationwide celebration.

Visitors wanting to fly to Shymkent need to know that Shymkent International Airport, found 5 miles (8 kilometers) to the west, is the nearest major airport.
